Since the 1950s, Recreation and Parks of Mississauga has "operated recreation programs to make the leisure time choices of Mississauga citizens more enjoyable and interesting." According to a slide show script from 1992, the recreation and parks division of Mississauga accommodate the entire city population with hundreds of programs and thousands of acres of parks. Moreover, there are many building facilities within the city, such as South Common Community Centre, Meadowvale Community Centre and many others where city citizens can go to participate in programs or to simply enjoy some free time. According to the same slide show script, "in the recreation program area, recreation and parks have eight specialized units. These specialists units are fitness, youth, aquatics, community recreation, arts, athletics, physical and seniors." In the picture above, the children are participating in a program part of the Recreation and Parks division, part of the youth specialist unit.
